Gifts for a Toddler Girl
Inspired by my 2½ year old daughter. These are all things that she either has and enjoys or things that I would absolutely buy for her, given the chance. This list is tailored to fit the type of toddler girl who is autistic, loves animals, drawing, and anything that is cute or has wheels.
Handcrafted, chunky, wooden dinosaurs by Holtziger. These are really cute in person.
Polka Pony cushion by Wu & Wu - $40
My Natural Good Earth Girl Mermaid 12" plush doll by MiYim - $25
Maritime Mates Undersea Treasure Hunt Pool Toy by Melissa & Doug - It's meant to be for the pool but it's perfect for toddlers who love to pretend to be pirates. Our daughter likes to have a map drawn for her telling her where to go to find it and then reliving the "TREASURE!" moment over and over. - $17
Maritime Mates Undersea Treasure Hunt Pool Toy
Animal figures by Schleich - Many toy stores have a good selection of Schleich figurines. There are wild and domesticated animals to choose from and LOTS of horses. They're usually about $5 - $8 each.
Dinosaurs in a Rock House by FAO Schwarz - 7 plush dinosaurs co-existing peacefully in a soft cave that doubles as a carrying case. It's pricey but a good deal if your child wants a bunch of snuggly dinosaurs in their bed, since these usually cost about 15 to 20 dollars each. - $60
R2-D2 small, plush clip-on that "talks" -- my daughter loves her "robot" and the sounds he makes - $9.50
Seahorse plushies -- these are small, sparkly, and wonderfully soft. We got ours at Barnes and Noble, but they're not for sale on their website. - $8
Campfire animals zipper bag for pencils and crayons - $7
Pocoyo: Meet Pocoyo DVD -- This show makes my daughter laugh hysterically. It's about a young boy named Pocoyo and his animal friends. Stephen Fry does the narration. I highly recommend it for babies and up. (It's currently airing on Nick Jr.) - $7
Space adventure pillow, Fiona Hewitt art - $40
Wu & Wu pillow with art by Fiona Hewitt and pom-pom trim - $40
Sandwich the Cat by Blabla -- These are hand-knit, soft and snuggly, plus there are other colors and designs available. We were lucky to have gotten ours when it was on sale ... - $52
